What a treat it was to be able to wake up on a Sunday morning, weary of the usual weekday cycle of granola-eggs-granola-eggs, and pop a bagel into the toaster!

A gluten-free bagel.

Little Northern Bakehouse offers a selection of gluten-free/vegan/non-GMO bagels. The texture, though unremarkable straight from the bag, evolves into the perfect blend of crispy, pillowy and chewy once toasted.

The bagels are pre-cut and available in varieties that cover all the bases:

  • Plain Bagels
  • Blueberry Bagels
  • Cinnamon Bagels
  • Everything Bagels

    As a vehicle for cream cheese bagels are quite serviceable, with a flavor that is only slightly sweet, but very compatible with a sliver of tomato.

    The same applies to Little Northern’s Everything bagel. It may be a bit heavy on the garlic for those four people who don’t particularly love garlic; but toasted, these bagels will fill your house with a pungent, earthy aroma and provide a savory compartment for your choice of fillings.

    My gluten-loving husband used his on an egg sandwich and was quite content, even recommending we seek these out as a regular addition to our repertoire.

    Bagels are not just for breakfast anymore, as any of us who have had (or seen) a lunch sandwich on a bagel, knows.

    But Little Northern also offers a selection of breads and buns that will carry you through the day and the week.

    There are seven different sliced loaves, including white, seeded, whole- and multi-grain.

    Thought my tastes land a bit more on the buckwheat spectrum, their Sprouted 7 Grain bread is a good multi-purpose option.

    I have high hopes for their buns, which I can’t wait to take to my favorite local burger and egg sandwich spots.

    The company also sells GF artisan pizza crusts and a variety of rolls and buns.

    In short, these breads are a true gluten-free contender, worth seeking out and having in the freezer for yourself or your gluten-free guests, especially as we head into holiday entertaining season.
